TASTING NOTES

"This is phenomenal. Dark and black color. Super, powerful aromas of blackberries, game, meat and cherries. Full-bodied, with big chewy tannins and a long, long finish. Almost slightly raw, but this will reward with bottle age. Best after 2006. 175 cases made." Wine Spectator

Drink from: 2006


"Saturated deep ruby. Brooding blackberry, boysenberry and licorice aromas are primary to the point of being medicinal. Huge and thick, with a sweet, pliant middle and very unevolved black cherry and medicinal flavors. Powerfully structured wine with major extract and sweet tannins. Not an elegant style but boasts impressive material. Also tasted: 1998 Brunello di Montalcino." Stephen Tanzer, Vinous.com
